Immunological studies in cerebrospinal fluid of acute viral and tubercular meningitidis, and other inflammatory diseases of CNS require a strict cellular detection and identification, that may be reached by cytocentrifugation. Several cases are reported, in which cytocentrifugation was obtained by Shandon-Elliott cytocentrifuge. Some morphological aspects are discussed, as the presence of high levels of "reticulomonocytes" in encephalitis, plasma-cells in acute disorders, activated lymphocytes in viral meningitis.
